I’m not a scientist. I’m bad at maths… and I mean awfully bad. Still, I consider myself science-minded, and my bs-detector reliably hums when things appear fishy. Sometimes, it displays „I honestly don’t know“ on its readout, which in itself is a reliable enough answer. Some of the things that I believe are certainly wrong, or even dead-wrong.
I want to pride myself of being able to change my opinion upon new evidence, but am I really? I don’t know much about anything at all at any depth, but I live in a huge cloud of knowledge-fragments, guided by google-fu to fill in the blanks whenever required. Just to forget everything again when not needed anymore.
I don’t think that I’m a really awesome guy, but I think I’m quite alright. I know that I can be petty and dickish at times – but I don’t enjoy being that way, I just can’t help it. I’m sometimes impatient with people. I am really bad at displaying emotions towards others; I do have these kinds of emotions, yes, but I guess they’re shallow in comparison. I’m not a diamond in the rough; it is what it is. I am what I am. Human after all
I believe that all of you have similar shortcomings and qualities, only in other areas of life. It’s sometimes difficult to see the person across from you, or on the other side of that line…
